That began a wonderful and fruitful relationship with Kevin producing for Bryan for about 8 years, traveling the world and working on some of the best commercials in the history of advertising. Kevin also produced over 20 Super Bowl Commercials for Bryan

In 2002 – Campaign Magazine named Kevin the best producer in the world – a lofty honour that he still treasures to this day In 2007, Kevin executive produced the Bryan Buckley Emmy award winning American Express Animals commercial. Considering they give one Emmy a year for commercials, this is a high honour indeed In 2007, Hungry Man provided an opportunity for Kevin to be elevated into the Managing Partner position at Hungry Man. This included overseeing the day to day operations of the global company, nurturing director’s careers and discovering new talent. After 12 years in this position, Kevin continues his work with a positive attitude, adapting to the current state of advertising, executive producing short films and living life to the fullest.
